, it is yours. connell: congress set to make a move on the debt ceiling. art laffer is coming up. dagen: playing some defense. the jpmorgan ceo lashing back at critics. more regulation is needed. connell: testifying on the benghazi attack and why moore could not have been done to save americans who died in libya. we will talk about that. dagen: stocks now and every 15 minutes. nicole: we are seeing the dow and the s&p hitting five-year highs. we are in quite an environment. nowhere near that 6500 mark where we were for the dow. we have seen a lot of names on the dow doing well today. microsoft, united, disney. we have had earnings season. we are all waiting on the debt ceiling and, obviously, that is something that looms over. google is up 6% now. as we await each one, it certainly can be a market moving event. after the bell, we will have apple and netflix. dagen: ridge edson is standing by on capitol hill with much more. rich: nothing is really set in stone. this bill would extend the debt ceiling until may 19. it requires the house and senate to pass a budget. if they pass a budget resolution
stocks, overall, will head up. cheryl: there is a lot happening. with the big vote on the debt ceiling extension so short-term. it will give lori and melissa a lot to do in the next few moments. lori: thank you. good afternoon. i am lori rothman. melissa: and i am melissa francis. the extension of the debt ceiling. will it make the markets feel any more confident? lori: in the meantime, lou dobbs is here. secretary of state hillary clinton testifying on the benghazi attack. melissa: is the economy and low beer? we have an exclusive interview with the american trucking corporation bill graves. lori: the big apple shrinking? the new trend of micro- apartments in manhattan. 250 square feet. melissa: time for stocks now as we do every 15 minutes. let's head to the floor of the new york stock exchange where nicole petallides is standing by. nicole: i saw pictures of those apartments, i would love to buy one. they actually look very cute. let's take a look at some of the earnings related names. let's start at mcdonald's. it is up about a half% here. they expect the management -- that is not
is prevalent, and the debt ceiling debate is going to further erode consumer confidence, people will not spend, and the rally might be in jeopardy. i'm a real basking of hopefulness and positivity. >> thank you so much. the unions, lou dobbs weighs in on dwindling union membership, but to the point, there's a rally holding on, but a rally nonetheless. >> that's right. the s&p right now, which was above 1500, 1502 to be exact a short time ago, back to the levels we saw in 2007. we're trying to hang on to the rally, but thinking the dow was up more than a hundred points, and now it's up 3 dlsh 4 -- 41. >> will the markets hold on despite with what's going on with apple breaking down? clinging to green, approached the 1500 level not seen in years. if we end higher, that's the 7th consecutive day of gains, the longest winning streak in more than six years for the s&p. >> and no longer the apple of wall street's eye. it pummeledded as they posted the fourth most profitable company ever. >> the state of the unions, organized work falling to new low levels. >> in all is fair in love and hair? where m
that threatens your economic future. congress voted to suspend the debt ceiling for three months this week, effectively raising the country's borrowing limit while they figure out deeper cuts to reduce the deficit. that keeps me employed for at least a few more months. even before that deadline hits again, march 1st will be on us, the so-called sequester deadline. that's a stupid washington name for a stupid and dangerous washington creation, the automatic across-the-board spending cuts. then there's another date to worry about, april 15th. not just tax filing day but the date by which congress has promised to adopt a budget resolution. they even this time stake their pay on it, agreeing to reach a deal or face suspension of their paychecks until they reach a deal. that might just be enough of a carrot to make them actually present a budget that takes on our a bah looning deficit. but that battle may make the recent battle over tax hikes for the rich seem like a friendly game of badminton. big spending cuts are needed and they will hit americans where it hurts -- in their entitlements. i'm
and last november. we've been through a fiscal cliff debate. we are working our way through a debt ceiling debate. i think in a responsible manner. with an eye towards trying to fix some problems. >> when you look at the options out there. president obama budget proposal and paul ryan's offer, they both don't do what guys like you say need to be done. balancing the budget for a long time. now you guys have a proposal or coming with a proposal that says you'll balance the budget in ten years. i ask paul ryan this, i can't get an answer. how? it's going to hurt. >> new baselines now in the budget. i mean, obviously, as we know, some of the difficulty and the differences in washington are centered around the method of accounting. whether it's static or dynamic. because it's static, when you raise taxes, that $650 billion of additional taxes that went in because of the cliff deal, that adjusts the baseline. that is going to make the numbers look somewhat differently. right? we'll have to make some choices. there's no question about it. >> right. >> but we have committed to putting a budget out
for the eurozone, as well, it's not just about the debt ceiling, they have to get the debt down. the debt ceiling may get raised, but it's not being tackled long-term. >> it seems every single time consistently we get the opposite outcome. which means some areas are consistent and it raises debt levels going forward. >> it seems to me as though we can't fix this one because democratically it's not possible. why? because there are so many verses who are automatically vote to increase the debt because the number of people who own entitlements or benefits is relatively high. and i think you're seeing this failure both in the u.s., in germany and to an extent in the uk. >> the trouble is for all of those economies maybe some of the european ones are under pressure by the government. but the problem is, if you look at issues in the u.s., they're just so low. there's no ability to cut in the long-term. how do you push through entitlement reform and address those issues, especially if there's no market pressure right now? >> my sense is that you don't. i don't understand how that can be achieved and, th
's going on in washington. we know this week that the house voted to extend the debt ceiling for a few months. we still face the sequestration and the continuing resolution. how does this play out? >> forever. >> feels like that. >> forever. they don't agree. so we're seeing an overlay of this, you know, one side the republicans, the other side the democrats. and i must say post-election, president obama has become more aggre aggressive. military spending, they don't agree with what taxation should be, title, on and on and on. gun control, they don't agree. and on the other hand, you know, we have this sort of slow economy that makes it more difficult to cut a deal. and i should add to that, a constitutional crisis in a way because this whole debt ceiling has been a weapon that the house of representatives have used to gain power. it's not just the republicans versus the democrats. it's the house versus the president. i don't know how it the play out. >> meanwhile, the marketses are on fire. the s&p 500 hitting a new five-year high along with the dow jones industrial average. what is d
that they back down on the debt ceiling debate was a good thing in the sense. came over. we saw that before. so start to change public opinion. forced the democrats to increase the debt ceiling and start to win over the public. david: one other thing that is extraordinary, how? you have a media that allows statements such as the following. this is a statement that was made back in 2011 about the 2000 volt budget. this budget includes a five-year non security discretionary spending freeze, reducing the deficit and this will bring spending to the lowest level since president eisenhower sat in the oval office. statements like this are so far removed from the truth. in fact, this president has increased spending to 25 percent of gdp, whereas it was 20 percent of the bush ministration. it was 16 percent under eisenhower. so they say these things and the press does not correct in. have you went public opinion that that? >> i think that was set on saturday night live, was the? david: no. taken seriously. >> well, first, you get a spokesman. the "wall street journal" said the other day, each house shou

right now as far as the debt ceiling goes. >> what's that do to economic growth. i mean, many economists say, you know, the debt ceiling debate, no matter what the fiscal cliff deal, take your pick, is going to shave half a percent of gdp in the first quarter of 2013. >> you know what, this is going to sound terrible, i don't put faith in what economists said. over the past two years, going into two double dip recessions. never came about. they don't have a handle on what's going on. investor and consumer confidence is better than anticipated. we'll do well. >> washington, we need tome -- to keep it going. a lot happening now in the oil market, especially with wti, michael, and in particular, the seaway, unclogging, if you will, of crude supplies another inventory build on our hands do you think? >> you know, tell you what, cheryl, i was with traders over the week, and we had customers on a ski trip in colorado, sat down, and talk about things, and, you know, the market, and the other two talking about this, there's confidence going forward, the markets going higher, commodity prices hig

and texas instruments. house leaders are expected to vote tomorrow to extend the debt ceiling deadline until may 19th. the gop measure doesn't specify an amount, but would lead let the government borrow what it needs to meet its obligation for that period. the strategy shift was agreed to last week and would let republicans focus on other fiscal fights in march such as ook automatic spending cuts delayed by the deal and the potential resolution. julian callow is still with us. julian, do you take this news as a positive development for markets or are you concerned about still the prospect of a government shutdown as others are calling for once we hit some of those further deadlines? >> yeah. i think that is quite positive, really. it shows that there is some desire not to up the vote too much on the side of the house. republicans at this stage. i think it's actually very important if we think about what it means for both financial markets and for the u.s. economy. obviously, financial market conditions have improved noticeably. there's less uncertainty around. that should come through in ter
toy with the debt ceiling and putting the chances of default at risk, that would be disastrous. we've kind of avoided that for now. don't forget, the fiscal cliff itself is a device that was put in place because of the current situation, because we can't come to an agreement on everything. >> but now it may actually be fostering a lack of bipartisanship, right? the snake has eaten its own tail. >> yes, exactly. >> i love that. it's so useful. >> losing our appetites, right? >> in terms of the other piece, the austerity program that the republicans would have us on, you know, for a long time we've been able to look -- not a long time, but at least a year we've been able to look at what has happened to the u.k. and their economy and sort of this fiscal austerity and how it actually hasn't worked, and as andrew points out, do you think republicans are sort of finally coming to terms with that notion? >> i don't think so. that goes against everything that they stand for. the fact that that would not work. it's funny. andrew mentioned the imf issued some concerns specifically when talki

backed off that so you didn't get that outcome. at the same time, they've pushed off the debt ceiling for a few months. so the body language out of washington has been more constellatory. so when you get to this point where you think about what the deficit might look like this year, i don't think you're going to be looking at a balanced budget so soon. you can't sustain trillion dollar deficiter year after year after year doubling the debt so many years and still think that the market is going to accept that over time. they know the market needs to move away from this, but it's going to away longer process. >> kevin and mike will be with us for the rest of the hour. >> and it's time for the global markets report. kelly evans is standing by in london. i could string up a lot of thing to talk to you about, kelly. you're very close to davos. i don't know. we -- i don't really feel like i've missed anything, really. but you're still close. you could have jetted over there easily and joined in with, you know, john legend and charlie thero this e, andrew ross sorkin. >> i was hoping maybe s

as the concern over the debt ceiling and the fiscal cliff winds down. cheryl: i'm sure there's a lot of investment banks right now in new york that are celebrating what you just said. we shall see. john, we will have more of your pick merck on thursday. merck's chairman and ceo will be sitting down with liz claman in davos switzerland, that interview is coming up later on this week. technology stocks took off last year. they've started off 2013 pretty strong, except for one name, apple. shares of apple this year have already fallen 6% in the first 13 trading days of the year. will the earnings report on wednesday be a turn around or will it send the stock going lower? plus will the rest of the sector follow its lead? we will have more on that coming up next. cheryl: business continues. investors gearing up for a big earnings week this week. tech giants apple and google both set to report. but let's take a look at some other major tech stocks that are in the green so far for the year. starting with some of the computer makers, fox business reported last week that dell may be looking t
banks are putting in. we're through the u.s. elections, ahead of the debt ceiling debate. in some sense there isn't an immediate crisis. it's a question now whether ceos can get through the real economic fundamentals. in some ways we're betwiked and between, kelly. >> i like the scarf, ross. >> yeah. that's the point. look, there's plenty to come on our coverage today. let me recap some of the people we're going to be talking to. john lipinski, formerly of the imf. and hamish tyrwhitt, construction group out of australia. we saw rates dip a little today. suggesting there's room to cut rates. and the executive dean of peking university. we're more relaxed about china, more relaxed than three or four months ago. we'll get the inside there. all of that is coming up on today's "worldwide exchange." how are the markets looking? >> perfect. we'll check the markets in a second. i want to bring news out of the bank upon spain saying fourth quarter gdp was down 1.not -- 1.7% drop, it was .6 drop. pretty large. and 2012 gdp down 1.3%, down from a contraction of 0.4% in 2011. more difficult news f
and says, how do you run a country with debt-ceiling debacles, fiscal cliffs with no decisions being made? and so it's a little bit like that old line, i didn't leave my heart. my party left me. i think a lot of big businessmen feel republicans have just gone a little bit crazy, and they are sort of now a group without a home because they're not democrats either. but it's another problem area for republicans. >> you saw that during the fiscal cliff. you know, when you had this parade of these big ceos going down to washington, more engaged arguably than any time in the last several years, but yet it didn't really have an impact at all. and i think part of that is because their message was, you've got to compromise, but part of that is because they weren't really saying anything specifically. they weren't hyper-engaged in a way they were calling them up and said there's what you have to compromise on. it was appealing to the mass populous. >> that group which i'm involved with left really disappointed/disgusted with what goes on in washington. >> as we all were. >> right. >> and that's tru
another debt ceiling debate and debacle would not be helpful here. i think there's so much minon the sidelines between the retail investor and the corporate america today, has so much money to invest. get rid of some of that uncertainty and this economy will go. i'm quite bullish about that. >> can you provide guidance for this year without knowing exactly what washington is going to come up with? >> we gave a range. we don't give guidance. we give a range on a conservative side and optimistic side. we're right inside that range. had a great start to the year. we're ahead of consensus. we her record asset gathering and record guidance sales and great control. had a great start. >> had a good three months in the stock as well at this point. fred, always good to see you. >> thanks for coming by. >> the president of amayor trade joining us today. dell shares sharply higher today. after david faber broke the news that microsoft is now in talks to help finance that buyout of dell. david joins us now with more details. they are getting a party together, aren't they? >> yes, they may ve
, the sequestration was supposed to happen january 1st. punt on that one. debt ceiling, supposed to hit that. now it will be steve 19. there's no austerity. >> what michael is saying in a very long-winded way is don't fight the fed. not fighting the fed. the fed, europe, japan's now with b to go hog wild. >> sure, sure. >> the whole world is printing new money. >> abe, the new prime minister of japan, japan is at least discussing a new quantitative easing scheme for them. they are going to be printing a lot of yen. >> the point is all that tends to be good for assets like stocks? >> very stimulative. europe will have to start printing money as well to deal with their issues so you don't want to fight that liquidity. >> earnings don't matter then? >> earnings do matter. i think probably revenue will matter a lot more than earnings by the end of 2013. earnings matter and fundamentals matter but the backdrop is we know what we think may not be relevant or what bernanke thinks is relative, he'll keep this a liquid environment for the foreseeable future. >> jim bianco, earnings matter. steve's liked t
a fight around the debt ceiling? do you think we'll have a disruption around this inability to compromise? >> i know nothing more than you other than what i read in the paper today and it seems like they are already starting to. could mice by pushing it out and asking for a budget which i think all seems rational and compromise by the way so i applaud them. >> what does your gut tell you about all the money moving into stocks recently? had a fantastic early 2013. do you think this is sustainable? >> the economy grows it's sustainable, and i still think you can buy american companies at pretty good prices. these are some of the world class companies, you know, not just american companies, european and japanese and chinese companies, but you are still buying at fairly good prices and the alternatives aren't that good, yeah, i'm comfortable owning stocks right now. >> are you saying that kind of comfort on the part of investors, the private bank, wealth management? what are you seeing in terms of the sentiment? >> i think, yes, but not -- it's not -- you and i have seen real bull markets, no
further and then we'll see in three months' time what we discuss and how we deal with the debt ceiling, that's not especially helpful. that's what actually a lot of u.s. leaders complained about with the europeans about a year ago. they were saying oh, you know just pushing the can down the road yet again. well, sure. >> i guess the whole issue of do you provide stimulus to a weak and anemic story or do you cut back in a time that things are really not growing so adding austerity to an already weak story? >> what is needed is confidence. and you need to restore confidence in the way an economy is run. so things will vary depending on the strength of the currency, depending on the financing needs, the financing situation of the country and for some countries austerity, strong right from the start, is needed. when, you know, the situation of finance -- when the financing is under huge pressure. as has been the case with some european countries. in other situations, where there is a degree of confidence where markets know that the governments are serious about what they're doing, the pace
think we're past the political rhetoric. we are solving one by one the issues of the day, the debt ceiling, the rhetoric around fiscal cliff, we clearly need to put all that to bed. but then we go after the reforms that matter, energy policy being a clear one with climate change attached. how we get tax reform in place to make americans and american corporations competitive again, globally. big thing for dow chemical. we want to reinvest in america because we can be competitive out of america. that agenda has to be put on the national agenda. i know the second term president is very keen on doing that. liz: the first term president was accused of being anti-business or not as friendly to business even though he brought a lot of business leaders to the white house and listened to them. many of them sat here and said you know what liz, though, he listened but i didn't see anything effectuated. do you think it's a different time now with president obama? >> i'm very fortunate that i was one of the ones that was called upon very early to help first term president obama. you've got to u
. that has to change. [applause] now, the house won't consider another debt ceiling increase unless the senate passes a budget. and we're not going to just keep raising the debt ceiling. we're going to make a down payment on debt reduction, and we're going to point the country in the right direction, we're going to cut spending. [applause] you know, there will be times p when conservatives disagree on the way forward. we've never marched in lockstep. that's not what we do. a healthy debate is a good and needed thing. we can deliberate in private without fighting in public. all we should ask of each other is that we give an honest account of our actions and their reasons for them. we should challenge the left, not each other. and if we take the prudent course, you know what? we'll be in really good company. our founders were men of prudence. take james madison. nowadays we call him the founder, the father of the constitution. but at the constitutional convention, he lost some key arguments. you know, he fought the plan to give each state the same number of seats in the senate. he tho
to the debt ceiling and saying another policy error could be a big market hit. what do you mean by that? >> we look can't think we are still in this leveraging scenario. it is not over. debt levels are still high in the u.s. and many developing economies. we have to bring those down to create a nice fundamental situation. that provides a lot of opportunity for policymakers to make mistakes or mess things up. and the extension in front of -- a sequester coming. the extension of the budgets for the coming year, in europe we still have spain refinancing 20% of gdp in debt, more than enough opportunities, that is not a best case. >> you are talking about the united states, the worst enemy at this point. to get these jobless claims at week 5-year lows, nice to see but if unemployment is at 10%, in range for 2013, and it will take 1/2% of of the gdp, no jobs, don't even have an economic recovery and no jobs. >> not necessarily a bad economy, we are in an okay economy, not great because 1/2%, from a fiscal austerity coming through the pike, the job situation is improving gradually, housing is and i s
overseeing t.a.r.p. and navigating the financial crisis to facing off with congress against the debt ceiling and the fiscal cliff, here is a look at the past four years as geithner gets set to exit. >> nbc news is now reporting that timothy geithner will be the treasury secretary under president-elect barack obama. >> tim geithner offers not just extensive experience shaping economic policy and managing financial markets. he also has an unparalleled understanding of our current economic crisis. >> the ayes are 60, nays are 34. >> i, timothy f. geithner, i pledge all of my ability to help outline that challenge. we are outlining a new fiscal stability plan. >> will you step down from your post sdmp. >> it is a great privilege for me to serve this president and i am very pleased to have a chance to address the range of concerns you said. i agree with almost nothing in what you said. >> we've got the t.a.r.p. it's suppose to expire. >> we are working to put the t.a.r.p. out of its misery and no one will be happier than i am. >> i am complete confidence in tim geithner. >> lots of great people w
and the white house can't agree on the deficit or the debt ceiling. will washington work is the theme of a seminar in davos today. house majority leader eric cantor, who is here will have to answer. that's the question on a lot of people's minds, why can't the u.s. get its act together? >> you know i think the thing that differentiates the u.s. from so many of the other countries especially in the eu we know how to fix our problem, and we're just at lagerheads as to which way to go. >> reporter: but the head of the international monetary fund christine lagarde said here "the u.s. has to confront this." if those decisions are postponed again -- >> well it will be pushing the can down the road again which was the reproach that we made against the europeans and i don't think that the u.s. should fall in that trap. >> reporter: and with the u.s. economy now showing renewed strength, the feeling here is that the u.s. could help pull up the rest of the world, if washington could just get out of the way. charlie, norah? >> anthony mason thank you. >>> in the internationa
